Apply the gel to the brush’s two sides and gently press it against the pot’s edge to create a pointed brush.

Starting at the center of the lash line, line with the brush as you would with a pencil eyeliner before proceeding to the outer corner of the eye. Lift your eyelid a little bit to tighten the lash line to the inner corner of the eye, and apply the liner. Eyeliner should not be separated from the lash line in any way.
